I have to deal with the public. It is part of my job. Usually, it is okay. Yesterday, it bugged the heck out of me!
I had a lady call me, and she was really pissed off about the road that she uses everyday being closed for 5 months while they completely reconstruct it. 5 months is not a very long time for a road to be closed, considering it will be COMPLETELY NEW when it is finished. This lady was mad. I tried really hard to be nice and explain how much safer, faster, cheaper it is to close the road during construction. I told her she may be inconvenienced for a few months, but she should be happy when it is finished. Her response? “Honestly, it’s just a road to me. I could care less.” That is like me saying your child is just a snot nosed brat to me, and I don’t like them. I may be thinking it (more often than not) but I would never say that out loud! This road is my baby! I have worked hard to make as good as it can be, and you could care less! OHHH!!
I ended the conversation with, “Have a nice day.” Aren’t I sweet?
My rant is finished.
